Thoughts After The Game

I was a little shocked at how lethargic our offense looked last night, but it's hard to read to much into the first preseason game because there is little to no game planning, and it was quite obvious Chud was calling some vanilla plays.  I was really impressed with the goal line stand and turnovers that the defense forced.  How about Keuchly!?!?

It was a messy game for both sides, but things should sharpen up from here on out.

Re: Thoughts After The Game

forcing 2 fg's inside the 10 yd line was a real good sign and building block. Gotta fix the KO cover team...but Adams will add a lot of zip and weapontry to the PR unit!

137 yds of total offense brings back terrible nightmarish memories of the 2010 season...thank God that season is in the past and such will never-ever happen again!

I thought another positive was Derrick Anderson.  God forbid he ever has to start, but I think he is a very solid backup.

Re: Thoughts After The Game

I'll chime in with the other good notes. Kueckly looks like a monster! He was all over the field and was always around the ball. He had several tackles and a forced fumble in less then one quarter of play. Adam Jones had that one CRAZY punt return that was freaking AWESOME! He did almost mess up with the punt that bounced right at his feet, but that's just a simple rookie mistake.

As for the offense looking bland and flat, they are shaking off the rust and also going with no game plan. Seeing our starters for two or three series hardly allows for an accurate picture.

As for our D. You have to keep in mind that they also went against two starting QB's last night. Schaub is a proven QB, and Yates was the one who took them to the playoffs last year. Our D locked down the red zone. They also had two takeaways early. I think they will continue to get better and be a vast improvement from last year.

The one note that i took away that was bad. Poor Clausen looks like a mess. He really had no time to do anything, but he looks like he doesn't trust the line at all. As soon as pressure comes, he started to move and always moved right into the pressure. If I had to guess, he will not be here after his rookie contract is up.

Yeah Clausen was too rattled back there.  He actually had open receivers but he was overlly concerned with the pressure.  That punt return was pretty exciting....
